Shaakuntalam Critics Review
Samantha Ruth Prabhu has made a fantastic film. The story is also engaging, and especially Samantha’s innocent eyes will give you a total goosebumps feeling. In this film, there are also some moments like how Shakuntala talks with animals and how she interacts with nature, which is shown fantastically in this film. A very important and cute moment in this film is a cameo by Pushpa star Allu Arjun’s daughter.

Shaakuntalam’s film is quite long, but still, this kind of heart-touching thought is present in a very short time, which is really very hard work.
